It [Weaving the Colors of the World mural] represents the diversity that is found inside the building, as well as throughout the West Side.
The work features textile patterns from around the globe, representing many of the ethnic cultures that have come to call Buffalo “home”. The colorful fabrics and traditional prints painted in the mural reflect the clothing worn by men and women who hail from Burma (Myanmar) and Somalia, for example. The mural recognizes these new refugees that have managed to create new lives for themselves despite all of the hardships that have come their way.
